Tim loved the desert and going on adventures with his wife, Bonnie. He loved hunting for arrowheads as well as making his own.

Tim loved being around his grandkids and great-grandkids. He was often found on his John Deere tractor taking his great-grandkids around the yard and loved teaching them new things.
